Kelvin Guy - Head Scenic Artist
One of the hugely talented people making The Gondoliers happen, Kelvin is one of a kind. He is a hugely respected scenic artist – a true master of his craft. For over 30 years Kelvin has been hand-painting the large cloth backdrops that you see in Scottish Opera productions. This includes the huge 12m by 9m backdrop for The Gondoliers, based on original Canaletto paintings of Venice's Grand Canal. This video was made in 2014, while he was working on Renaud Doucet and André Barbe's Don Pasquale .
